Artist Biography

Ilona is an image-maker and a digital artist. Taking images gives her as much fun as processing them. Digital tools and painting helped convert her photos and composites into digital art.

Learning new ways of making her art different gives her pleasure; she evolves and moves on, so she does not get boring to her viewers or bored with herself.

She is regularly published in International Art Magazines and participates in numerous Art Exhibitions. It is incredible what we can produce in the digital age, and it is fun.

Artist Statement

In these last two years, we had so many restrictions. We couldn’t travel overseas and sometimes not even to the next suburb. My art is my sanity. Some of you probably think the word sanity is not coming to mind when you look at some of my artwork. I kept swamped during this time. I also tried to get inventive and created my models in the digital world.

For this exhibition, I came up with the idea to paint portraits in the style of Art Deco. I painted the illustrations in Procreate on my iPad. It is fascinating that my art lets me bring my fantasy to print and that I can share my somewhat warped ideas with the viewers. I hope that my work evokes questions and triggers your fantasy.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Liza Botkin has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Liza award-winning photographer based in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Liza was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 22nd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Liza’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Liza’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Liza Botkin was born and raised in New York City. She graduated from The Brearley School and attended Syracuse University and Hunter College. In 1971, Liza moved to Los Angeles where she worked 9 to 5, mostly in the entertainment industry.

After working as a studio manager for Michael Childers, she purchased a Leica CL camera, took a photography course at Fairfax High School and her photography career began.

During the 70s and early 80s she roamed the streets, department stores, markets and public gatherings of L.A. She entered competitions and was chosen to be in several publications and shows. In 1983, she stopped shooting, got married and her Leica sat in a drawer for the next 15 years. In early 1998, at her husband's urging, she brought the Leica out of the drawer, built a darkroom, and she’s been shooting and printing ever since.

Liza still hangs out in malls, markets and places where large groups of people tend to gather. She takes her camera with her every day, shooting "from the hip" because she doesn’t want people to be aware of her. She takes pictures where the subjects are weirdly but humorously interacting, in moments that amuse her and makes her smile when they come up in the developer.

Artist Statement

I was born and raised in New York City, but my photographic career began in Los Angeles in the 70s while I was working for photographers Michael Childers and Lou Stoumen, from whom I learned how to print.

I consider myself a street photographer, shooting from the hip, taking my camera with me wherever I go. I wander the streets of Los Angeles, spending much of my time in malls where, for many years, I’ve been documenting the preoccupation many people have with shopping.

Though I’ve never studied the art of photography in an academic setting, my work is deeply influenced and defined by that of Henri Cartier-Bresson. I, too, search for what he so aptly called “the decisive moment.”

Artist Biography

Eileen E. Senter is a self-taught digital artist. She has always enjoyed art and dabbled in t-shirt painting, ceramics and clay molding. However, after retirement with the British Government 15 years ago, she chose photography as her medium of choice.

Her first camera was a Kodak instamatic but Eileen has never liked straight out of the camera images and very soon researched various software photography programs that would help her grow as an artist and showcase her artwork. She blends programs together, sometimes two to three times until she gets to the “aha moment!”

Eileen’s favorite subjects are wildlife, flowers, rural scenes for composites, anything in nature. Her work has been published in the Galveston Monthly magazines a few times.

Artist Statement

I am originally from Nottingham, England, now living in Texas with my Husband, who is my best friend and avid supporter of my work. I have always had a desire for photography but creating art is my true passion. I am self-taught and work with many digital programs using my images to create and compose with the desire of bringing to life what I see through the camera for a finished and combined work of art.

Artist Biography:

Sheri Emerson is an international award-winning photographer and digital artist who splits her time between her homes in Tempe, Arizona and Labrador, Canada. She travels all over North America, incorporating her landscape photography into her digital art pieces.

Sheri’s work has been exhibited at the Heaven Art Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Pennsylvania Center for Photography, and the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece. She has had six top-ten finishes in the Light, Space and Time competitions in the last year, and has won numerous Best in Show and Judges Choice awards in competitions such as FusionArt and Contemporary Art Gallery Online.

She won her first art contest at the grand old age of five. Sheri can be found most days either with camera in hand, shooting her next subject, or furiously working in Photoshop putting the finishing touches on her work.

Artist Statement:

Art is something that is intensely personal. When I am creating a new art piece, I am putting a piece of my soul out there for all to see. I try to tell a story with my work - it's not enough to just create a "pretty picture." Art should make you think, make you wonder, make you feel something. It should be an experience, just as it is an experience for the artist to create that piece. That need to create, that desire to say what is in one's soul...that is what drives the artist.

I like to portray strong women in my work, women who look as though nothing will hold them back, that they can do the impossible. I know the joy of flying after having my own wings clipped for so long, and my dearest hope is to reach someone who takes that little spark of the imagination she sees in my work, turns it to her own life, and makes it just a bit better than it was yesterday.  Sheri’s website http://www.sheriemerson.com

Artist Statement:

These are photographs that I've wanted to make for a long time.

Although my early ideas of what they might be were nothing like what they became.

It took a certain model, a certain woman, and a long path to make them what they are, something out of my dreams, or, perhaps, my nightmares, but existing only in the shared imagination of two artists.
I've always appreciated the human form, both in art and as art. The shapes and forms that emerge with the abstraction of the body created by the body make-up create a sense of power contained within the softness of the figure, played out against the coarseness and hardness of the man-made objects.

The curves of the rope echoing the curves of the body.

The cold hardness of the chain revealing the strength of the body.

The linearity of the chair and ladder contrasting the suppleness of the figure, belying both time and age.
